(1) Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest income, taxes,
    depreciation and amortization, impairment losses, stock-based
    compensation, and other non-recurring gains or losses including
    transaction costs related to acquisition. Management believes Adjusted
    EBITDA is a useful measure that facilitates period-to-period operating
    comparisons. Adjusted EBITDA does not have any standardized meaning
    prescribed by IFRS and is not necessarily comparable to similar measures
    presented by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered
    in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss) prepared in
    accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB.

(2) In Canadian dollars, rounded to the nearest cent.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...
